WEIRD PARTY: The Secret Lives of Men: 7”

Ex-Fatal Flying Guilloteens playing two hundred proof, no-holds-barred garage punk. It sounds like the band was raised on a steady diet of the Stooges and Wire that would pass for a hardcore band if it weren’t for the lead guitarist. There’s an element of the pure rock persona that eludes my ability to articulate on this record.

Playing the one word essence challenge, I would choose the word: unfiltered
